Symbol Error Probability of Distributed-Alamouti Scheme in Wireless Relay Networks

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we analyze the maximum likelihood decoding performance of non-regenerative cooperation employing Alamouti scheme. Specifically, we derive two closed-form expressions for average symbol error probability (SEP) when the relays are located near by the source or destination. The analytical results are obtained as a single integral with finite limits and an integrand composed solely of trigonometric functions. Assessing the asymptotic (high signal-to-noise ratio) behavior of SEP formulas, we show that the distributed-Alamouti codes achieves a full diversity order. We also perform Monte-Carlo simulations to validate the analysis.
